Highlights from our interview
At the June 2023 Medipreneurs Summit in Kansas City, MO, Dr. Brigette Serfaty introduced me to a combination of mindfulness, meditation, and sound healing. I experienced loud chords of sound from crystal bowls, but I was also able to focus on the meditation portion of the experience. I liked it.
Dr. Serfaty works with a variety of individuals at the intersection of mindset and well being:
- Students and faculty at The University of Arkansas
- Busy professionals (including healthcare professionals, like pharmacists)
- Group trainings
There is evidence to support that mindfulness works. KORU is a mindfulness app Dr. Serfaty uses with her students. The Oura Ring https://ouraring.com/ has meditations inside their app as well; data is available to show measurable (heart rate) changes while meditating.
We discussed Positive Intelligence Training and the Saboteur Assessment. The results give names to the voices in your head. Once you know your saboteurs, you can be more mindful about which voices you listen to and the mindset you adopt.
Perfection and imposter syndrome were part of our conversation. Normalizing failure helps others, especially students, understand that failure is a learning tool – not a barrier to success. Failure is painful, but it’s part of learning.
Brigette has a YouTube Podcast called Minding Your Minutes. She hosts a variety of guests, including wellness practice owners and lifestyle medicine practitioners. The content is conversational, educational, and sometimes cathartic. The name of the Podcast (Minding Your Minutes) is reminder that mindfulness can take just minutes.
